McLennan put together a 9-0 run over the next two minutes to force a Temple timeout and extend the lead to 19, 37-18. The Highlanders continued to control the game down the stretch and held the 48-30 lead at the half.
 
The second half was much the same. The Highlanders led 62-45 at the first media timeout with 13:40 remaining in the game and pushed the lead to 20, 71-51, midway through the half. McLennan ran away from Temple from that point on, ending on a 29-11 run to roll to the victory.
